Acclaimed bandleader, composer and clarinetist Oran Etkin pays a distinctly modern homage to the 'King of Swing,' Benny Goodman. 'What's New?' at once celebrates two sides of Benny Goodman: the music of his big band that launched the Swing Era and of his quartet that became the first mainstream racially-integrated band. Described as 'a composer of eminent individuality' by his mentor Yusef Lateef, Etkin taps into both Benny Goodman the bandleader and clarinetist on this phenomenal tribute recording.
